The Bowe Bergdahl Controversy Could Be Politics At Its Very Worst

Last night Jon Stewart did an excellent piece regarding the Republican Party’s outrage over Bergdahl’s release. As I was watching all of the clips featuring Fox News pundits, Dick Cheney and others; I felt so much sympathy for poor Mister Bergdahl and his family, I can’t imagine what it would feel like to come home to all of this poison from one political party laying it out for thousands of viewers to listen to and make their own snap judgements. I can’t help but think back to when President Reagan got our soldiers who had been taken in Lebanon; his methods weren’t by the book either but there was no mention of that from anyone on any television news site. The five detainees from Gitmo have been removed to Quatar where they will be held by that government and we have our soldier back. I hope that he will be able to resume his life and get whatever help he needs because I can’t think that the past five years have been easy for him.
